Found by Keith C.: “Attached are my back yard finds from an hour and a half hunt. A St. Christopher medal and some recent clad are the only interesting finds. This house used to be a farm house years ago and iron abounds. The clad and foil were near the surface, no more than an inch, while the medal was about 3 inches. Medal was probably from 20 to 30 years ago. The iron was 4 to 5 inches deep, probably from 30 to 50 years ago based on what I know about the house.”
Found by Ron P.: “I went out today and found a stud earring along with some clad not shown in the pictures. The post was broken off the back. There is a round stone in the middle surrounded by 20 small stones. It rang up in the gold range on my Garrett AT Pro at about 3”.
Found by Lee N.: “Lee N. went out with Tom R. We detected another abandoned convent that is due for the wrecking ball any day now. Found a sterling silver ring, 5 inches deep, with an Ace 400. The plant tag and clad were found 2-4 inches deep. Convent has been abandoned since 2010.”
